LG has no doubt that it has superior technology in its repertoire. After all, it sells it well to many manufacturers of phones, televisions and other end products. A little less successful is the Korean company with its phones. It may also be slightly wrong, because at least in higher grades, as a rule, they offer very high prices for the price. They are not as striking as most of the competition, which is also true for the new V40 ThinQ.
At least one feature is that this phone is definitely out of the question. To put it better, he stood out when presented at the beginning of October. At the time, there were five photo lenses, three rear and two in front, really something special. Good, even four months later, when the V40 came on sale in Slovenia, it's still, but we've already seen some other phones with lots of different cameras. But about what value and quality this photographic plural brings, a little later. However it makes sense for a minute or two to dedicate to the outside of the phone first. To what the buyer will take in his hands and what he will look at.
at first glance, it would seem that the word is less prestigious and slightly more expensive than
main competitors. But I think this is a misleading impression, which derives from the slight
uninhabited design. The frame is metal and the back side is supposed to be
glass, but perhaps with a kind of coating, so it turns out to be a little less prestigious.
But the strength seems pretty good and I like the phone not to be slipping out of hand. Not

however, the size is not distracting yet. But it's an interesting mass. According to the specifications
not so little, but the weight is lost in the palm of the hand, which indicates a good internal one
arrangement. So the V40 is very nice to use.
Its screen is large, very clear and extremely bright. LG continues the practice started with the G7 ThinQ, at that time with the LCD, that the luminance of the screen can be "waved" over the border for some time. At the expense of battery consumption, but for even better visibility in the sun. In winter, there is no need for this, but in the summer it can be useful. In terms of colors and contrasts, this display is difficult to measure with the best, but it is better than what LG put into the V30 and delivered to Pixel 2 XL for Google. It is a shame, however, because high resolution (stretched QHD) was not used to display more content, as everything on the screen is quite high.
the partner of the large and high-quality display has become the speakers in the phones.

Near the five-camera camera, LG was loud and wide-eyed a pomp. Partially justified and partially not. The camera really allows for a lot of possibilities, flexibility and, say, artistic expression, but the quality of it is a bit lagging behind the best. In particular, the dynamics and quality in low light are average. Lighting or noise is rapidly occurring and LG has not yet developed a night mode. This will be necessary this year if they want to stay in the game. Three different focal points at the main and two in a self-eyed camera are a useful word and, fortunately, the quality at ultra-wide angle and telephoto is not far worse than the main one. Thus, the user can select any focal point – I recommend one of the fixed, not some intermediate steps – and always will be quality similar and generally quite satisfactory. There is also a way in which the phone itself captures a motif with all three lenses and produces a short video from these three shots. The front is also occasionally useful to switch to a wider view. So with the V40, the V40 really offers a lot. After all, it's also manual mode and photographing with artificial intelligence. The first one is likely to be used by those who know exactly why, and the rest will be left alone. While AI is recommended at most for motives where there is no significant color accuracy or excessive saturation is even welcome. I'm talking about taking pictures of food, possibly animals and something else, otherwise I think that the imagery without artificial intelligence is more natural and more beautiful to my eyes.
The above is true especially for flickering, while the video has less chance of playing. Apparatus
it's basically just two options of focal points, otherwise it's moving around the whole
spectrum, but it's obviously encouraging the user to shoot

options for custom settings are great, but it's just for recording this
I would not buy the phone.
In the end, it is both from the point of view of usability and the V40 looks like a phone that offers and enables many. It's such a rational purchase, a bit cheaper than other pretenders, but with the exception of five lenses, it might be missing something striking.
